Can you feel it? It’s football time in the Bluegrass! I can hear the high school band practicing this morning, Kentucky high school football got underway last and Rich Brooks will lead his team onto the field for a closed scrimmage today. Don’t worry about calling the doctor if that sports boner lasts more than four hours. It’s natural this time of year…..
– Check out the Courier Journal for all the high school scores from last night. In case you’re wondering, South Oldham plays Woodford County today.
– The always well-dressed Chip Cosby takes a look at a few reserves looking to step up on the UK football squad.
– The C-J’s Brett Dawson writes that a committee of players are trying to fill Jeremy Jarmon’s sizable void on the defensive line.
– Alan Cutler takes a break from chasing people or having drinks with The Brominator and Santa Kige to chat with Ryan Mossakowski about his transition to the college game.
– The Danville-Advocate’s Larry Vaught says Mike Hartline learned his lessons at an early age.
– ESPN’s SEC blogger, Chris Low, has five things to watch for in the SEC East this year.
– Jody Demling writes that the hot prospect du jour, Enes Kanter, will be playing several games in Kentucky this year as a member of the Findlay Prep squad.
– The USA Today has a story where former A.D. C.M. Newton sticks up for Calipari following the Memphis ruling.
– The Herald-Leader has an op-ed piece saying that even if Todd and Barnhart deny it, Calipari is UK’s problem to deal with.
– The Courier-Journal’s op-ed section says that UK should keep a close eye on Calipari, who must not have been paying much attention in the past.
– Pastor Paul Prather (try saying that fast 10 times) writes an interesting column, titled “What if I were Rick Pitino’s pastor?”.
– At the Boost Mobile Elite 24 in New York, UK recruit Doron Lamb turned some heads with his play for the New York Gauchos.
– Also, Zagsblog runs down the whole event giving news of Josh Selby’s dunk, Tobias Harris’ co-MVP and dishing on the performances of targets CJ Leslie, Roscoe Smith, Harrison Barnes and Kyrie Irving. Also he says that Lamb said he deserved MVP last year when John Wall and Lance Stephenson split it. I like that.
